It’s finally that time of year when everyone is scrambling to find the best gifts for their loved ones. I don’t know about you, but we’ve done zero Christmas shopping so far. Not a single gift. So we’re a bit behind this year. But thankfully, we still have a solid month left before Christmas.
Since I know so many amazing mamas who have recently given birth (or are about to in the very near future), I thought I’d put together an awesome gift guide for them. I really wanted to go above and beyond the “typical” gifts like various baby products or nipple creams. I don’t know about you, but for holidays, I want something specifically for me. Something I may not have thought of or things that I haven’t had the time, energy, or money to treat myself to. So I tried to think outside of the box for you ladies.
If you have an amazing new mom in your life, here are 10 super awesome gifts for new moms that you may not have thought of yet!
2 | Lululemon Leggings. Many new moms live in leggings in those first few months postpartum (some of us live in leggings regardless! ha!). Keep her comfortable by getting her a great pair of Lululemon leggings. I’m sure she’ll never take them off!
3 | HelloFresh Gift Card. The last thing a new mom wants to do after having a baby is cook a big meal every night. So why not give her a HelloFresh gift card? We tested it out when our daughter was about a year old and we loved having it in our home. The kits came with every ingredient needed and each recipe took 30 minutes or less to make. It made dinnertime so much easier in our home.
4 | Bump Box. I recently came across Bump Boxes and I so wish I had known about them during my pregnancy. Bump Boxes is a monthly subscription service that curates fun, healthy products for mom and her baby! Subscriptions can begin in the 1st trimester and go all the way up to the 4th trimester (the first 3 months of baby’s life). They even have a special newborn box specifically for your little one. These boxes typically contain 4-8 full-size products for baby with a surprise or two for mom. Gift Subscriptions come in 3, 6, and 9-month increments. You can learn more here.
5 | A Cleaning Service. If you’re a mom, you may remember those days when cleaning the house was an impossible task. I know any mom would love and appreciate a good cleaning company coming in and helping around the house. This can be a one-time deep clean or even a monthly or weekly cleaning. Whatever your budget can afford, help a mama out to keep her home spotless! Groupon is a great place to go to find good deals in your area!
6 | Audible Gift Card. I found it so hard to pick up a good book when our daughter was super little. Having Audible downloaded to my phone helped a lot in allowing me that “me time” to read during the day. An Audible gift card is perfect for those moms who love reading.
7 | Naturebox Gift Card. Sometimes it can be super challenging to eat healthy after having a baby. Breastfeeding moms tend to experience an increase in hunger and cravings and as a formula feeding mom, I experienced a lot of eating out of boredom. The big thing that helped me was having healthy snacks at my fingertips. So I highly recommend a gift card to Naturebox to help keep her happy and healthy!
8 | A Professional Photo Session. Photos are a gift new moms will cherish for their entire lives. No parent ever regrets having those gorgeous professional photos of their little ones. Find an amazing photographer in your area and sure the new mom in your life has the opportunity to get those photos done.
9 | A Spa Day. I don’t know a single mom out there who wouldn’t love an afternoon or even a whole day off from mommy duties. So why not send her to the spa? Again, Groupon is a great place to find deals on spa packages in your area.
10 | Starbucks Gift Card. Coffee is always a good idea for new moms. How else are they going to get through those first few weeks (or even months!) of sleep deprivation? Send them a Starbucks gift card so they can get their caffeine fix when it’s needed.
